Tito: The Story from Inside

By Milovan Djilas
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1980
185 pp. $9.95
Purchase

An antidote to the unmixed adulation of the official eulogies, this is a candid and critical portrait of Tito, full of praise for his political genius but also of regret for his failure to depart from the Leninist model of personal and one-party power. It tells as much about Djilas as about Tito, and avoids a final judgment because, in the author's words, "too much of my life was intertwined with his."
